MOSCOW, April 23./ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Energy Ministry has approved a plan of actions designed to supply Crimea with electric energy and develop the Unified Energy System of southern Russia, the Ministry said in its report on Wednesday.
The project, including the development of the Kuban energy system, will require 71 billion roubles (1.9 billion U.S. dollars) worth of investments.
The action plan adopted at a meeting with Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak provides for the construction of thermal power stations operating on gas fuel with a total generating capacity of no less than 700 MW I and the maximum unit capacity of no more than 110 MW.
The new generating facilities will be installed at the Simferopol thermal power plant and near the federal city of Sevastopol.
